VIC lawyers hit laneway
The Victorian Attorney-General and more than 350 legal practitioners celebrated the opening of the legal year in a Melbourne laneway this morning.
The annual Victoria Law Foundation Legal Laneway Breakfast, one of the most popular networking events for Victoria’s legal sector, took place in Hardware Lane between Little Bourke and Lonsdale Streets.
The Honourable PD Cummins, chair of the Victoria Law Foundation, officially opened the annual event, which is in its ninth year.
The Attorney-General, the Honourable Robert Clark MP, and Joh Kirby, the executive director of Victoria Law Foundation, presented guest speeches.
A raffle was also held, with all proceeds donated to the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that works to transform the lives of Indigenous children by focusing on literacy and numeracy education.
